50 State Salute to Banned Books Week: Call for Participants
ALA OIF BLOG
Nanette Perez | September 4, 2012
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week, the national book community’s annual celebration of the freedom to read. To commemorate this milestone anniversary, the Office for Intellectual Freedom is coordinating a “50 State Salute to Banned Books Week.” The “50 State Salute” will form the core of ALA’s participation in this year’s Banned Books Virtual Read-Out and will consist of videos from ALA Chapters proclaiming the importance of the freedom to read. Many ALA Chapters have agreed to participate and we hope that your organization will join us by creating a video. Please note that the “50 State Salute” is for organizational participation only. All individuals wishing to participate in Banned Books Week should check out the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out page for information on ways you can participate. The deadline to submit video for the “50 State Salute” is Friday, September 28, 2012.
